While Bruno Guimaraes has been announced for Newcastle, Olympique Lyonnais is working to find a replacement for him. This one is all found in the person of Romain Faivre.

Olympique Lyonnais
could well lose one of its engines. Bruno Guimaraes is announced to be leaving for Newcastle. The English club, recently bought by a Saudi investment fund, wants to attract the Brazilian midfielder from 18 years in St. James Park. The Magpies, who play their skin so as not to go down in 2e division, have made two offers of 40 and 52 million euros (bonus included). Having left with Brazil for the truce, Bruno Guimaraes could no longer wear the OL jersey. But Jean-Michel Aulas has a plan B, and it is in Ligue 1. According to information from the daily L’ Team,

it is finally Romain Faivre who was chosen by the Lyon leaders in the event of departure of the Brazilian. Courted in France and abroad for more than a year, the midfielder of 18 years is an indisputable starter at Stade Brestois and is involved in 14 goals (8 goals, 6 assists).

Romain Faivre estimated at 15 millions of euros

Under contract with his club until 2025, Romain Faivre never ceases to attract covetousness. Arrived from AS Monaco in 2020, his training club, the playing master of the Stade Brestois is today estimated at 14 millions of euros. This is the amount that OL intends to put in the next few hours, with possible bonuses. Last season, the international hopeful (8 caps, 2 goals) almost signed with AC Milan before his transfer ended up aborting. Four days before the closing of the winter transfer window, Romain Faivre is clearly a priority track at Olympique Lyonnais. Discussions between Lyonnais and Brestois have accelerated and so have confirmations of the imminence of the transfer.

The proof with this last information, since the international hope is not part of the group for the next match against Nantes. Suffice to say that his transfer is considered imminent on the side of Brest.
